Happy WOYWW! I need to be thinking about what my ATCs should look like, and how may I will make cause that anniversary is coming up fast.
My desk isn’t bad. That makes for a change. If you saw the poast from yesterday and the earrings I was working on, made from an old A to Z mini map book, this is what the final piece looks like. As I said, it works as either earrings or as a single bead necklace.
Once I get some gold ear-wires, I can wear them. I think my overall desk shot didn’t save (thank goodness a new phone is in my very near future!) But if I manage to snap another I’ll add it here. To be fair, much of my work over the last week has been on the computer, not the desk, which is why it is pretty tidy LOL! I will pop in another collage I have been working on. It will possibly end up on Ko-Fi at some point. Unlike the Monday one this is not all my own ephemera bits in the background, but I have a whole lot more to process. I might re-do this one and swap out any bits that are not mine and use new items then use it as a sample like the first set.
This is possibly the last week sweet Angelina will be living here. I will miss her like mad, and so will Darling Daughter. Had it been just me, I fear The Hubster could have said “No New CATS!” with ease but it’s harder to deny DD when she is so keen. So yeah, not at all surprising, there may be a new cat round here in the coming weeks. But not till after the mess and chaos of the last few windows getting done. I’ll just add a little gallery of my favourite shots of her.

Love the earring. I haven’t made paper beads in eons. You will surely miss that pretty kitty. Love the pics especially the one with the paw over the ear and peeking out under the blanket too!

Fabulous paper bead, you could do a set for a bracelet. I look forward to your new fur baby arriving. I have been hanging on to find what theme we are doing with the ATC’s. I would like to get them done before we go away. Happy WOYWW. Angela #7

Animals steal your hearts . . . . very quietly so you don’t notice . . .

I adore the paper bead!

I do like your earring and must catch up on your earlier blog. It looks like a wrapped paper bead. I used to know someone who made and sold bracelets of wrapped paper so I sent her pictures of Frida Kahlo and she made me a bracelet of them.
So sorry your cat is moving on and I hope you get a new one soon.
Take care and happy WOYWW

SUch cute pictures of Angelina Mary Anne. Hope you find a cat that is just as loving. We have the grandkitties staying for a few days starting this evening as both our sons are going away at the same time. Love the earring/pendant too. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

Fab photos of the cat who I now discover has a name. Especially love the last one, so sweet.
The bead/or ear ring is gorgeous. I love it and it is ages since I made paper beads but I always enjoyed them. Yours is vastly different to what I have ever done, is that a special container the paper is in? Do tell. Please.
Hugs, Neet 2 xx

Not at all. It is just a wrap of paper, but coated in clear nail polish. The large eyelet fits the top and bottom and the bead snuggles inside that, with the pin with the hanging loop inside THAT. Look back to the previous post and you will see more about the construction 🙂
